USMNT showed mindset required for World Cup to rescue attract on muddy night in El Salvador

 United states game against El Salvador as a semi dress practice for the FIFA World Cup disappeared when the group showed up at Cuscatlan Stadium for preparing Monday night.

They were aware the forecast called for rain, but minutes into the first warm-up drill, it became clear the field wasn't going to hold up. 

Even light jogging left mud tracks in the previously undisturbed grass, and that was before the rain really started to come down.

the annual average precipitation is roughly three inches. Instead, the team received a final dose of CONCACAF madness, where skill and precision were trumped by grit and emotion in a 1-1 draw.

A Jordan Morris header in the first of six minutes of stoppage time rescued the result for the U.S. -- extending its unbeaten streak against El Salvador.

Yunus Musah was particularly impressive on the ball, as one of the few players who seemed unencumbered by the conditions.

Goalkeeper Ethan Horvath had a similar opportunity. He made his first start in a U.S. shirt in over a year but was caught out of position on Alex Larin's 35th-minute goal.
